    some api stopped working for me like

    api.instagram.com/v1/users/search?q=jack&access_token=XYZ

    always answer
    Code:
    {"meta": {"code": 200}, "data": []}
    
    api.instagram.com/v1/users/123/?access_token=XYZ

    always answer
    Code:
    {"meta": {"error_type": "APINotFoundError", "code": 400, "error_message": "this user does not exist"}}
    
    yes, I updated the token to include the new intents, even created a new app from a different account, nothing changed. I also notice some service that allow you to get user id from username are broken ATM. How's that I'm the only one complainin?? no other service stopped working??

    Because of the new instagram API you can't see stuff outside of your account scope (so only your feed and account info) if the app is not "Live" (approved by their staff).
